Talk about timing. I received the latest issue of The Atlantic Magazine in the mail today, and inside is an article about some artisanal rum that was still being produced, in small qualities, in southern Louisiana and New Orleans.
The article is informative and well written, and I'm sure you will learn more of the history of rum. The end of the article switches gears, and talks about Banana Foster desserts, and how to make it properly at home.
The article is available on-line, and can be found here ...
The same issue also has an article about Ernest Hemingway's love affair with the daiquiri - not the slurpee concotion of today, but the recipe from years past when it was considered a man's drink. This article can be read here.

This month's Maui Times Weekly magazine also mentions the original daiquiri and Papa Dobles.
Check out the above page which has a column titled "Cocktails nobody orders anymore" which lists the original daiquiri you mentioned first, along with a few other classic drinks with a brief bit on each.
Thanks for the links.
